Community consultation was recently carried out to progress plans to remove the level crossings at Werribee Street and Cherry Street in Werribee.
Community feedback will help us understand the way locals travel around the area and what is important to the community. A variety of design options will be considered during the initial planning stages.
These streets are used by 40,000 vehicles daily as key connection points in Melbourne’s west, linking the large residential area north of the Werribee line with the major activity centre and Princes Freeway south of the line. A total of 140 trains travel through the Cherry Street level crossing each weekday, with more than 100 freight and regional trains passing through the Werribee Street level crossing each week.
Works are expected to commence in 2019.
The project involves separating rail and road movement at Werribee Street and Cherry Street in Werribee.
The Level Crossing Removal Authority has been busy investigating a number of ways to remove the Aviation Road level crossing.
